The last rays of the warming summer sun have long since set. The cool autumn is now arriving. Regardless of the finest Mecklenburg continuous rain and the stormy wind, today we are happy to organise a mystical, double birthday ceremony according to old customs in a remote forest near Lake Schwerin.
At the pagan rebirth festival, the theme of dying and being reborn is the focus of the ceremony. Before the ritual, you think about which things and disruptive properties you want to throw overboard, or what else you want to part with. These things are carried to the grave in order to then step into the new year of life unencumbered and thus into a symbolic new life.
This spiritual atmosphere is underlined by the prepared verses of the friends and relatives present. A few lines are presented in a varied manner, recalling past experiences and deeds or highlighting the special character traits of the celebrated people. After we have performed the pagan ceremonies, we sit together by the flickering fire and spend a few wonderful hours.
Dear Daniela, dear Freyja – we loved spending the day with you. It is memorable and you and us will always keep it in remembrance. May the old gods and the great mother, who is the oldest and wisest, always stand by your side!
